That’s it! It’s finally time to head off to uni and start an exciting new chapter in your life.
You might be feeling a mixture of emotions; anxiety, excitement, worry, uncertainty are all perfectly normal, but rest assured that the team at Northgate Point, luxury student Chester accommodation is ready to welcome you with open arms.
As student accommodation close to Chester University we want your first few hours, weeks and months at uni to be the best that they can be so we’ve put together a quick check-list to help you make friends with your house mates and secure some of the best friends you’ll have for the rest of your life.
- Adopt an ‘open door’ policy – people are more likely to visit you in your room if the door is open and you welcome them in. Feeling comfortable in an environment makes us feel more relaxed and more likely to open up
- Take part in communal cooking – they say that food is the way to a man’s heart but it’s always a great ice-breaker for any situation that you’re in. Food brings people together to share experiences and stories so make the effort to cook for your housemates or make it a team effort
- Host a welcome party – it sounds silly as you’re all living together, but if you invite everyone to meet in the common room with a few beers in tow then you can all meet each other at the same time and on neutral territory. It’s also a less intense way of getting to know each other. Drinking games are optional!
- Don’t be afraid to ask – whether you need help with an assignment or you’re struggling to settle in, a problem shared is a problem halved. Chances are you’re housemates are feeling the same so why not help each other through the situation
We know that your first year can be incredibly daunting; you’re in a new city in a new living space and studying something you’ve never studied before. But believe us when we say that your first year will be unforgettable, even if some events are better off kept secret!
